The blue pill, or the red pill?

Where was I?

Oh right, back to fantasy. Suddenly, the blue pill’s potency has waned as I drag myself back into cyberspace. One minute I was partying in Zion (aka blogosphere) and the next thing I know, I was dragged into the mad frenzy called “reality”. Now why the hell did I follow that white rabbit?

Sorry for being MIA for the past few days. For the past week, I was stuck in a world full of Agent Smiths – evul clients clad in power clothes, demanding near-impossible deadlines and never-ending revisions. They hypontized me with their convoluted Power Point presentation. Never mind the sleepless nights, I rarely sleep anyway, but when you work 18 hour shifts, brainstorm while you take a bath and even while you sleep, you know the so-called “real world” is swallowing you whole. Thank heavens I was able to get out.

And for that, I would like to thank my good friends from Zion (also known as the “blogosphere”) – Morpheus and his army of gnomes, angels and fairies, the Oracle and his mink for chasing down the white rabbit, and Trinity for reminding me that I am being missed. Without all of you, I could’ve been stuck in the rabbit hole for good. Thanks guys, you were real troopers. See, I’m checking on all of you even if the evul agents kept me locked in a 5 X 5 cubicle.

Sigh. If I only have a choice, I wouldn’t take that damn red pill. Like they say, ignorance is bliss.

By the way, it's Trinity's birthday today. Be an angel and drop her a line, will you?

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all
Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
Call Alice
When she was just small

When men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know

When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's "off with her head!"
Remember what the dormouse said:
"Feed your head
Feed your head
Feed your head"

Sorry to hear you had to spend some time in reality - what a bitch, eh?

Thanks for the heads-up on Meander's birthday!

And glad you like this morning's photo. By the way, Sigmund slipped out the door while I was taking it. Have you seen him?

The blue pill sucks. But the fact that we have to take one everyday sucks much more.

As for Sigmund...I think he's stuck in Wonderland with Alice.
